Although not listed in his will, Dorothy McClure appears to be a daughter of Halbert McClure, who died in Augusta County in 1754 (more research necessary). She was married twice; first to David Dryden and 2nd to a Mr. Johnston (identity unknown).

Will of Halbert McClure (several children not listed):

  • Page 36.--23d March. 1753. Halberd McClure's will, gentleman--Wife, Agnes; brother, John's son Halberd; sons; son Alexander, son Nathaniel, executors. Teste: Baptist McNabb, Jno. Davison, Saml. Lyle. Proved, 16th May, 1754, by Davison and Lyle, and executors qualify.

The following record (one of many with David Dryden and the McClure family) shows a close relationship of David Dryden, Dorothy McClure's husband, with Halbert McClure's family (the Samuel McClure and John McClure listed are both sons of Halbert McClure, whose will is listed above):

  • Page 42.--15th May, 1754. Saml. McClure's bond as guardian (appointed) to Halbert McClure, orphan of Jno. McClure, with sureties Richd. Woods, David Dryden.

Also, Nathaniel McClure, son of Halbert McClure (whose will is listed above), appears to have named one of his daughters after his probable sister, Dorothy McClure (note her husband also David Dryden witnessed this will):

  • Page 18.--5th February, 1761. Nathaniel McClure's will--Wife, Mary; eldest son, Holbert, £10 to cure his sore leg, above his share; sons, James and Nathan? (their young brother and sisters). Rest of children, viz: Halbert, Mary, Alexander, Hanah, Thomas, Margaret, Dorothy, Moses. Young sons to be put to trades. Executors, Alexander and Moses McClure and Archd. Alexander.
